Fresh Orange Mousse Recipe

Fresh Orange Mousse is a light and creamy dessert made from fresh oranges, sugar, whipped cream, and gelatin. The dessert is typically chilled until it sets into a mousse-like texture and is then served topped with fresh fruit, whipped cream, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Nutritionally, fresh orange mousse is relatively low in calories compared to other desserts, making it a healthier option. Oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C and dietary fiber, which can promote a healthy immune system and digestive function. However, the dessert is also high in sugar and fat due to the use of whipped cream and sugar in the recipe.

The origins of orange mousse are unclear, but it has become a popular dessert in many countries around the world. It is often served during the summer months when fresh citrus fruits are in season.

Fresh orange mousse is easy to make at home using fresh oranges, cream, sugar, and gelatin. There are also many variations of the recipe, such as adding other fruits, nuts, or chocolate for added flavor and texture. As with any dessert, it should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

Oranges contain pectin, which can lower blood cholesterol. Research shows that orange peel contains components that can help to kill bacteria and fungi.

    Lightly oil four individual pudding basins and set aside. Pour half the orange juice into the pan. Sprinkle over the gelatin and allow to stand for 5 minutes, until spongy.

  • 2

    Place the pan on the heat and heat gently, stirring occasionally until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat, stir in remaining orange juice and allow to cool.

  • 3

    Beat together the orange rind, marmalade and soft cheese, until smooth. Whip the cream until soft peaks form. Fold into the marmalade mixture. Gradually fold in the orange juice mixture.

    Divide the mixture between the prepared pudding basins and chill for 2 hours, until set. Meanwhile slice the orange to serve, dip the pudding basins in hot water for 20 seconds and invert onto serving plates. Decorate with orange slices and sprigs of mint.

Tips & variations

  • It is best to use unwaxed oranges for this dish. If you are using waxed oranges, wash them thoroughly before grating the rind.

  • For a really luxurious touch, serve the mousse with chocolate wafer biscuits.
